- Plantar fasciitis and femara
HELP!!! I have been on femara for 12 months, and at about 4 months I started getting plantar fasciitis. I now have plantar fasciitis in both feet and it is so painful that I am contemplating using a wheel chair. I cry daily from the pain, and sometimes wish I would just die. I was taking ibuprofen to help, but my onc had me stop due to liver issues. Is there anyone out there that can give me any advice or suggestions? I truly wish that I had just left the cancer alone, as my quality of life is so poor now that I see very little value in it.

- While taking a medrol 4 mg. pill pack, (a blood test was done) can a false reading occur for the vitamin-d level or score lower than 30 occur?
I thought I was having a heart attack. I went to an E.R. was admitted, after many tests it was not. Three days later I went to my family doctor, believed in was due to my lungs. I was prescribed a 4 mg. medrol pill pack. About 4-5 days later I was still having chest pains so I went back. Another doctor order multiply blood tests and scans. I was contacted by the doctors office and told I had a vitamin D deficiency. Can this blood test be wrong? Can or does a Medrol 4-Mg. pill pack, MethylPREDNISolone is the brand name, cause a vitamin D deficiency? Please help,

- Sleep paralysis while on medrol and norco
On my 5th day of my dose pack about an hour after taking medrol and a norco I experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. This is the 3rd dose pack in 2 months and I just switched back to norco from Ultram the same day I started the latest dose pack. I felt unusually sleepy before taking my bedtime dose, but felt awake shortly after taking it. My sleep habits have been fluctuating due to sciatic pain which is why I am prescribed this medication.
- Bone pain whilst taking letrozole
Before having breast cancer I walked 10 miles a week, and did a 40 min exercise
routine. Having had a lumpectomy followed by 15 radiation treatments, and then
prescribed letrozole for 10 years, I can no longer do my 40 min exercise routine, nor the power walking that I have done for so many years.
I suffer severe bone pain and fatigue.
I have come off the medication (3 wks now) after taking letrozole for 6mths.
I can no longer tolerate the awful side affects, and Im just hoping the cancer
does not come back.
